Why are you listing the examples as \donttest?  If it's because they 
will fail on CRAN, wouldn't they fail on a user's system?  Then you 
should fix the examples so they don't fail.

If you marked them that way because they violate some CRAN policy (e.g. 
writing to a user's home directory), then you should fix them.  Those 
policies are there to protect users.

If you marked them that way because they take too long to run, then it 
seems like CRAN shouldn't complain about the run time.  I don't know if 
they do or not.
